I still think harry potter is way overrated....

It frustrates me that that is always on bestseller lists, recommended reading lists, etc.


Freaking fantasy addicts....



But honestly, I'm gonna get it at midnight, finish it in 6 hours, and spoil it for my friends ASAP.


edit: Harry potter...in latin?

Whoa! How do they do the psuedo latin in that?

Is Veritaserum called Truthiness Potion or something?  :D

En De Halfbloed Prins?

Is Dutch just English written by 4-year-olds?

I prefer the adult cover in this one, with the medallion. Although I'm tired of Harry Potter, I know I will get, and read this, once the insane "Camp-outside-Waterstones' crew have gotten thier copies.

I've always thought of Dutch more as English with German spelling and pronounciation.

I only know one word of Dutch : 'lol', which is Dutch for fun. I find this moderatley amusing.

It looks more like Afrikaans, if you ask me.  If you say it out loud it is virtually identical...

Anyone care to tell me some of the things that are on the Adult editions that are not in the normal ones (cause I never read the adult editions, lol)


Simple, instead of them saying "Blahdeblah swore under his breath" it says "Blahdeblah said 'Oh mother****ing mother **** **** crap ****ty crap'"

Yeah, the cover is the only thing different.
